Moving forwards with an integrated workforce an opportunity has arisen for an experienced, innovative nurse who is looking for an exciting challenge.
This new way of working offers the opportunity to clinically help shape the development of the Neighbourhood Teams and contribute to key pathways, working across the health and social care economy.
The successful candidate will be committed to improving patient care, working within and promoting a case management model, providing visible and effective leadership at the point of care and further developing their knowledge and clinical skills.
This post will suit an individual who is seeking to progress clinically and is therefore willing to undertake further studies, for example Independent and Supplementary Prescribing, Advanced Practitioner Studies and disease specific modules/diplomas.
As a clinician and leader at the point of care the role will involve close working with Community Matrons, GPs, Neighbourhood Team nurses, therapists, social workers and wrap around services to manage complex patients with long term conditions and supporting new initiatives promoting proactive case management to avoid unnecessary hospital admissions.
